Downtown Lansing Community and Nation Wide

As the first established church in Lansing, we have a long history of providing the city and surrounding areas a place to worship and attend community events.

“We find our effective unity in the fact that each one of us is in need of God’s mercy and healed in His love. What binds us together is the Grace of God and not our outward conformity or homogeneity.”
– Rev. Stanley Jenkins



VISION 2020

We are believers in Jesus Christ, who gives us faith, life, unity and mission to the world. As a diverse, multi-cultural and enthusiastic congregation, we meet in downtown Lansing to grow in love and knowledge of God.
